Something I’ve lost perspective on since leaving law school is how to enjoy life. You may be thinking, “nothing about law school was enjoyable.” You’d be right. I hated law school. However, I had big hopes and dreams for life after law school. For awhile, I loved it.
But then, bit by bit, I stopped enjoying it.
If you’ve talked to me in real life about being a lawyer recently, there’s a chance I would have told you, “I hate it.” I’m trying to stop doing that. I’m trying to think of positive aspects about my career that I can share with others, but it hasn’t been working.
So instead of forcing myself to change my feelings toward one aspect of my life, I’m deciding to take the reigns all around.
I’m going to spend the next 31 days talking about enjoying life. I want to appreciate it all. I want to show gratitude toward Christ for the blessings he’s given me. I want to soak up the Glory that shines over every day (even when it’s been raining for hours upon days upon weeks in the Pacific Northwest). I want to find joy in work, life, love, friends, family, relationships, food, weather, the mundane and the exciting.
I want to enjoy. And I’d love for you to join me.
